MITCH KM, ON UKl'OKT.
Jcclnres Miners Will bo Welt Sat-
lulled With Flntlluics.
Detroit, March n. The decision
of the anthracite coal strike com
mission is, on the whole, a decided
victory for the miners, and I am
pleased with it," said President
John Mitchell of the United Mine
Workers of America in an inter
view tonight with an Associated
Press representative. "The anthra
cite miners of Pennsylvania have
reason to be much pleased with the
commission's award, and I am sure
they are," he added.
In reply to a question, as to
whether the miners were given as
much as had been hoped for Mr.
Mitchell answered, after an instant's
deliberation, "I do not care to say."
"The most important feature of
the award, "he continued, "is, of
course, the increase of 10 per cent
given to the miners. ThisSviJi re
sult in an annual increase of Wages
to 140,000 anthracite miners of
Pennsylvania of $6,000,000. The
sliding scale provided for by the
commission is verv satisfactory, in
asmuch as a minimum of $4.50 per
ton is fixed. With white ash coal
n $5-5 Per ton at tidewater the
increase provided in the sliding
scale will be equivalent to 20 per
cent more in the miners' wages."
President Mitchell was asked if
he was disappointed because the
committee did not recognize the
union formally, and he replied that
he was not, because the decision of
the commission and its awards were
in themselves recognition of the
power and influence of the United
"After the increase of wages
given the miners," said Mitchell,
"the most important awards from
the miners' standpoint arc the ones
fixing a nine-hour day and provid
ing for a board of conciliation.
The award gives a nine-hour day
with ten hours' pay directly to
90,000 mid practically all of the
other employes oi the anthracite
mines will get a nine-hour day by
reason of their comrades' shorter
"The provision for a board of
conciliation will result in great
good, and I am much pleased with
it. It will compel investigation of
both sides of controversies between
miners and operators and bring the
employers into closer relationship
with their men. This couuot help
but bring most beneficial results."
Mitchell was asked whether the
portion of the commission's report
saying tliat tne Miners union as
at present organized offered little
inducement to the operators to en
ter into contractual relations with
it referred to the fact that the
United Mine Workers was not nu
incorporated body and whether it
would have any effect on the possi
ble incorporation of the order.
"The commission does not refer
to the organization not being an in
corporated body," replied Mitchell,
"but to the fact that so many of its
members are among the bituminous
The commission's recommenda
tions of more stringent enforcement
of the laws against child labor in
the mining region would, Mitchell
suggested, result in. great good.
"I think that this will result," said
he, "in securing the passage of a
law that is now pending in the
Pennsylvania Legislature, raising
the age limit at which children
may go to work to 14 years for
boys in the breakers, and 16 for
entering the mines."
President Mitchell's attention
was called to the statement in the
commission's report that conditions
ju the mining region do not iully
justify the adverse criticisms made
before the commission by the min
"I do not care to discuss that,"
Mitchell said. "I am not an im
partial observer of those conditions,
of course, and I may take an ex
treme view of them. Such things
are, to a great extent, you know,
the results of one's point of view,
and mine is perhaps prejudiced."
While he admitted he thought
the commission's recommendation
that the coal and iron police be
withdrawn would he a good thing,
Mr. Mitchell refused to discuss the
effect this might have on conditions
in the mining region.
"How will the miners receive the
decision of the commission that in
case of a deadlock in the board of
conciliation an umpire shall be ap
pointed by the Judge for the Third
Judicial Circuit of Pennsylvania?"
was asked ofMhe miners' president.
"This will be entirely satisfactory
to the men," he replied. "Such
appointment, if made, will come
from Judge Gray, in whom the
miners have every confidence."
"Until I have read the entire re
port," Mitchell said, in concluding
the interview, "I cannot comment
011 it or discuss it at anv length. It
is manifestly impossible for me to
do this, but I repeat that, on the
whole, the awards of the commis
sion are very satisfactory and a de
cided victory for the men. The in
crease of wages is the most import
ant of these, of course. Next in
order are the nine-hour day and the
provisions for a board of concilia
tion." "Will the miners stand by the
commission's report and award?"
"They unqestionably will."

Mary Anderson Will Not Appenr.
London, April 1. Mary Ander
son, whose husband is Antonio F.
de Navarro, and who retired from
the stage some years ago, has re
fused a flattering offer to give stage
readings. She says that she has
left the stage for good.
Mary Anderson was born in Cal
ifornia in 1859. She was educated
at the Ursuline Convent in Louis
ville, Kentucky, and at the early
age of thirteen determined to de
vote herself to the art of the stage.
Having met with Charlotte Cush
mau, the celebrated tragedienne, in
Cincinnati in 1874, she went to
New York to take lessons in elocu
tion and in other dramatic require
ments. About a year after her re
turn to her native place she made
a debut there as ''Juliet" oti Nov.
27i x875. Her success was instan
taneous. She played all over Am
erica and in 1883 went to England
where she continued to have suc
cess. In 1890 she was married to
Antonio F. dc Navarro. She has
since retired from the stage.
